Please share what experience you have with Arabic language and/or culture.

As a child, I learned to read Qur'anic Arabic, but I didn't keep up with the language. I decided to study Arabic again in 2011. I LOVE Arabic music, dance, culture, movies, art, poetry, food and politics. I have also travelled in the Middle East a few times. I am an arts and culture writer for Aslan Media and my job is to write and review art events about the Middle East. I'm also on the Board of Directors for Golden Thread Productions, America's only theater company dedicated to staging plays from and about the Middle East.

What would you like to gain from coming to "Yalla Arabi!" meetups?

I would love to meet some Arabic speakers so I can practice speaking because I only know how to read a little bit of Arabic. I also want to meet people who love and appreciate the Arabic language and culture as much as I do.

How did you find out about Yalla Arabi?



Hi, I dabble in Arabic. I have studied a little fusha, Egyptian dialect and Arabic calligraphy. I absolutely love the Arabic language, culture, music an food.
